In a hospital !!! why ?

Hello friends .. today my grandma called from Baghdad to tell us this tragedy story ….
My mom's cousin M , (she is a doctor) went to her job in Al-mahmoodeya hospital , then after few hours , she heard a very loud explosion , it was a bomb car exploded in the hospital , my grandma called her to see how is she doing , did she got hurt or not ? she said …
"I was in the delivery room when one of my patient's just gave birth to a nice healthy baby , then I heard a very loud explosion , & things falling on me , I tried to go out to see what is going on in the hospital, I was covered with blood & I saw horrible views , dead bodies , even some of my friends died" … she said "the national guards were like angels they ِ, helped me & saved my life"…
it was a miracle that she is a life , anyway , Dr. M said that our brave national guards helped her to go out from the hospital , because they had to close some of the hospital's loop-holes , they were expecting another bomb-car her way-out she saw her patient dead (the new mother) …
& that all because the Americans soldiers were in the hospital giving the children toys !!
50 Iraqis died & 4 Americans , that what I heard in the news …
few months a go , her twins (they are 9 years old) were in the school , & a shell felt on their classroom many pupils died , & the others got hurt …
my grandma said that she was hysteric , once she laugh , & then she cry , then she scream ! ..
I am so thankful to see her & her twins a life ….
God bless the national guards..
Sunshine …
Note my mom will write a post about that too …. Check her blog later…

My diary in the last two weeks ...

Hello friends ,
it was a long time since I wrote a post , but as you know I was in Baghdad &then I had so many exams & homework , ( I know , I know you miss me I miss you too ) ..
I went to Baghdad on Monday31/10 , fortunately we had no much delay.
On the first day we arrived Baghdad, we had al-ftor with my parent's uncle & his wife.
And on the first day of Eed all the family gathered at the house of the oldest member of the family , my other parent's uncle .we had lunch together , & when we returned back to my grandparents house many relatives & friends visited us , so at the end of the day I was exhausted.
On the second day of Eed my family & I went to Hassan's house , I saw hnk , Raghda , najma & their parents ..
At this visit to my grandparents, my grandma gave me so many books & novels ,as you know I love reading.. so know I will have something to do in my spare-time , when we don't have electricity ..
At the third day of Eed ,we returned back to Mosul , & we had good trip again …
In the last 2 weeks I had soooo many exams, I did Ok in them..
But every time , I study I suffer from bad headache , so my parent will take me to the Eye doctor , next week ….
